Foundation Specialists, Inc. [FS] is well known as a DESIGN & BUILD CONTRACTOR, for Vertical and Horizontal Construction. [FS is still often mentioned as the Builder of LRT 1 , which we have built in the early 1980s, from foundations to copings, including the seismic re-design of its Foundations on Bored Piles]. As It is a truism that “No Structure is safe and durable unless is built on good foundations”: FS is known as Builder of Durable & Safe Structures: ●CAREFUL STUDY OF GROUND CONDITIONS, and ●ADEQUATE FOUNDATIONS MAKE FOUNDATION SPECIALISTS' WORKS. SAFE, DURABLE & EARTQUAKE RESISTANT, and that is based on records. In the field of Deep Foundations and Soil Consolidation FS has designed and developed Methods and Technologies for STABLE & SAFE FOUNDATIONS in the most diverse and most challenging soil and site conditions.

Foundation Specialists, Inc ("FS " for short) is a Multinational Construction Concern with Italian participation and management.
Foundation Specialists. Inc. (FS) was formed in the 1970s by merging and consolidating into It two Partnerships with solid background and successful accomplishments in the Engineering and Management of Large International Infrastructure Projects.
The two Concerns which merged to form Foundation Specialists, Inc. had, over the years developed and managed the planning and construction of large Underground Hydropower Schemes, including Pump-Storage Hydropower Plants with Reversible Pump-Turbines; Support of Large Deep Excavations, Bridges, Viaducts and Elevated Railways IN DIFFICULT GEOLOGICAL & GEOMORPHOLOGICAL CONDITIONS. FS has managed, through theoretical and field R & D, to fine-tune field applications of Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering, Soil and Rock Mechanics and develop Construction Methods and Technologies applicable to general conditions.
Because of the way it was formed, Foundation Specialists, Inc. started “ab initio” from the beginning, as a leader in its consolidated fields of expertise, i.e. large infrastructure projects requiring expertise in deep foundations and in the geotechnical field of works; and Large Deep Foundations Projects.
Foundation Specialists, inc. provides:
- High-quality service in conformity with international engineering standards.
- Solutions to problems associated with construction and especially in the field of foundations on "difficult soil" both onshore and offshore.
- Design, development, testing and implementation of special technologies and new construction methods and technologies..
- Responses to the ever-changing market requirements, through continuous Research and Development of new technologies and improvement of existing ones.
- Timely or early completion of Projects.
- Development of skills and training of engineers and technicians in the field of Foundation and Geotechnical Engineering in a joint program with the "Philippine Institute of Research on Foundations and Structures, inc."
